Jones Day Targets India With London Hire
The Asian Lawyer
Jones Day has added an India practice partner to its London office.
Sumesh Sawhney was previously a partner at Clifford Chance, where he was co-head of that firm's India corporate group.
Sawhney's practice has focused on India-related mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and cross-border investment. Previous clients for India deals include Bayer and Malaysia's Maxis Communications Bhd.
Between 1992 and 2000, Sawhney worked in-house for Indian conglomerates Thapar Group and the Escorts Group of Cos. In 2003, he joined Amarchand & Mangaldas & Suresh A. Shroff & Co. as a partner and moved to Clifford Chance as an associate three years later. He became a partner at the British firm in 2010.
